Get ready for a packed week of sport on Red Button with coverage of the Chinese Grand Prix from Shanghai and the Masters Golf tournament in Augusta, Georgia. Sit back and enjoy the dulcet tones of jazz singer Caro Emerald who was live in concert for Radio 2 and test your antiques expertise with our popular Antiques Roadshow play along.
Dutch singer Caro Emerald will delight fans on the Red Button this week
Radio 2 In Concert – Caro Emerald
Caro is a stylish Dutch singer whose debut album sold more copies in Holland than Michael Jackson’s Thriller. She performed live at the BBC Radio Theatre on Thursday 11 April and you can continue to watch highlights from the show on Red Button.
Both Caro and her band are great, charismatic performers – previously seen on Red Button at Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park 2011 - so we are delighted to welcome her back.
BBC Radio 2 made Caro’s Riviera Life the Single of the Week and Deleted Scenes from the Cutting Room Floor was Album of The Week too. She’s visiting Radio 2 ahead of a UK tour later this year so we are lucky to have this early look.

Sunday 7 April, 7.55pm-9pm
It’s an exciting week for sport on the Red Button with the promise of a thrilling Chinese Grand Prix and continued coverage of the highly anticipated Masters Golf tournament.
After the high-drama of the Malaysian Grand Prix will Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel put team interests first in Shanghai? We’ll be showing pit lane action from the qualifiers followed by a repeat of the race itself and all the post-race analysis. See whether Jenson Button can revive his title challenge hopes after a poor start to 2013. It’s going to be unmissable viewing.
Turning to golf, you can watch highlights of the second round of the 77th Masters from the world-famous Augusta National course in Georgia. Rory McIlroy has set his sights on glory but will he edge closer to a third major title win? And if that’s not enough you can get your fix with the Masters Amen Corner on Sunday evening.
Later on in the week look out for the Triathlon World Series event in San Diego. Jonny Brownlee is out of the competition due to injury but his gold-medal winning brother Alistair will be hoping to add to the family’s trophy cabinet.
